Strippers Make Money: Career Day
PALO ALTO, Calif. A popular speaker at a Palo Alto middle school's annual career day might not be invited back after he advised students that stripping -- yes exotic dancing -- could be a lucrative potential profession.
William Fried (freed) informed eighth-grade students at Jane Lathrop Stanford Middle School in Palo Alto on Tuesday that exotic dancing was a lucrative career move -- offering as much as a quarter (m) million dollars annually. He also said the exact amount of financial opportunity was directly proportional to the dancer's bust size. Fried is the president of Foster City's Precision Selling, a management consulting firm.
He told students: "The truth of the matter is you can earn a tremendous amount of money as an exotic dancer, if that's your desire."
Fried has given his 55-minute talk "The Secret of a Happy Life" to students for the past three years. He also distributed a tip sheet that includes a list of 140 careers, ranging from accounting to wrestling, as well as exotic dancing and stripping.
The school's principal plans to send some apologetic letters home with students.
Fried says he doesn't think he offended anyone.
Let me repeat: Fried says he doesn't think he offended anyone.
Um, okay. Can someone out there please explain why this joker has a job while I am unemployable?
